Mica serves as the chairman of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, which is one of the largest congressional panels in the U.S. House of Representatives. "We are pleased to welcome Chairman Mica as a featured speaker, who is a national leader on transportation policy in the United States, including aviation issues," said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen.
